It’s been real and it’s been good but it hasn’t been real good. Blogging wasn’t my favorite part of this class but nothing was my favorite about this class. I’m done with blogging forever so thank you and have a great life.
Something that surprised me is that Janie was with Joe for such a long time. I understand that marriage back then no one really got divorced but she had no problem leaving Logan so fast. Why would she spend twenty years with someone that she doesn’t care for and treats her so badly. Janie had an AHA moment where she realized that Joe doesn’t care about her opinion and is only married to her because he felt like he could change her and was bettering her, not because he loved her. So why didn’t she leave him then? It’s not like his feelings will ever change for her or that her opinion will ever start to matter to him so why can’t she just leave him like she did Logan. I understand that when she left Logan she had someone else to go with and she doesn’t have that with Joe but she was unhappy with Logan and it feels like she is more unhappy with Joe so why doesn’t she stand up for herself. I will say that when Joe starts to get sick Janie starts to stand up for herself and speak her mind because she feels like Joe can’t fight back. I dislike Joe because he treats Janie like a child but if they would’ve just had some communication I think there marriage could’ve worked. One other thing that surprised me was that the town cared so much that Janie was moving on to another man after Joe’s death. I don’t think they have a right to tell her she shouldn’t be with another man because her husband is already dead, he isn’t coming back so don’t they want Janie to find happiness again? Maybe they want Janie to find happiness with someone who is more like Joe instead of Tea Cake because they are nothing alike and Tea Cake treats Janie much better than Joe did and the town doesn’t like seeing her a different kind of happy.
Today is national sibling day and I have to say it doesn’t really affect me. Two of my brothers are off at college and I never talk to them and my little brother lives with us but I never see him. So I don’t think I will post a picture of all of us and say how much I love them, I may just send them a text. My family is getting bigger, my dad just got married and now I have three step siblings but only one of them moved in with us and it’s really hard to get use to having him in the house but in the end I think my dad is happy which is what is most important.
New York is one of my favorite places to be. I have visited twice and there is just something about being somewhere and feeling like I was apart of something. When I took this picture I was on the Hudson River with some of my friends and looking out onto the city, and it was just really pretty and I wanted to remember the moment. I also edited it and flipped it because it symbolized how life can flip upside down but still look beautiful.
Picture was taken and edited by me.
Blogs are important because it is how we get our opinion out and tell people what we think. Another way to do that is commenting on other people’s blogs so they can get another perspective. A way to make a good comments would say their opinion isn’t wrong but that you look at a different way. If you agree with them don’t just say “I agree” say why you agree. Commenting on blogs is just as important as writing your blog.
Tomorrow March 3rd is all of my brothers birthdays. They aren’t triples although my older brothers are twins the younger one just happen to be born on the same day. My mom told my older brothers that he was their birthday present, although they didn’t know it at the time it was the worst present ever. My little brother is such a brat and I know I’m not the only one that thinks this. But anyway this weekend my older brothers are coming back from college and we are going to celebrate at Kalahari with my dad’s fiance’s little boy because his birthday was on February 28th. So we are all celebrating at once. I think it’s going to be very chaotic but that’s what a big family is I guess.
I don’t know if I want to go to prom this year. I went last year at my old school and don’t get me wrong it’s fun but it is so much work. I have to go find a dress that I actually like and I’m so picky. I have to actually get asked. The day of I’d have to go get my hair done and my makeup because I for sure couldn’t do it myself. It cost so much money and I just don’t know if it’s worth it this year. I also don’t know who would go in my group if I went. I’m new, I really don’t have that many friends that I’m that close with.
